&Tradition is a furniture and lighting brand that prides itself on the key Scandinavian design principles; “Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential.”
The brand holds quality to a high standard, manufacturing Danish classics from the 20s, 40s and 70s by design masters Arne Jacobsen and Vernon Panton. The &Tradition design team also includes icons of tomorrow such as Jaime Hayon and Space Copenhagen. Production methods challenge convention, rethinking material use and manufacturing techniques. Nature is respected as it provides raw materials that sustains the brand’s unique designs which are made to last.
Below are some new releases that will soon be on their way to a showroom near you.
Here at CRÉMA we never fail to be impressed by GUBI. These treasure hunters of furniture design have a very simple philosophy, “great design should have a story to tell and be able to blur the lines of time, and that a bit of courage and risk-taking can carry you far in the design world.”
This design philosophy has steered GUBI’s designs over a 50 year history acting as a marker of what it takes to create a brand that celebrates the luxury of living life.

We would like to introduce Bosa, the internationally known Venetian ceramics workshop, which has been creating completely handmade objects and pieces of furniture since 1976. Bosa creates functional objects and works of art and design in collaboration with designers and businesses. Bosa products are known for their exclusive colours and finishings, such as precious metals and enamels, the fruit of the company’s natural and constant propensity towards experimentation and research.
By now you are back from the beach ready for the year ahead. We thought we would start the year by introducing some lighting by Foscarini. One of Italy’s finest lighting manufacturers, Foscarini are treasure hunters who work with the best designers they can find – and then source the most skilled manufacturer for that particular material to deliver the very best product possible to you.
Foscarini focuses on developing new products but chooses to only put into production those that express new ideas. This is why Foscarini lamps are so innovative yet built to weather the whim of trends and become true classics.
See their featured designs below – we love the simplicity of the Satellight. The Filo also deserves special mention as it won a lighting design award in Milan last year.
Like you, we are a little design obsessed – we can never have enough. And with so many beautiful pieces to choose from, curating our showroom is a real challenge; something one tackles slowly but surely.
